“I am having the BEST time writing, producing and releasing these songs. It is so life-giving to make music so that I, along with our people, can articulate the challenge, beauty and promise associated with these days,” shares Crowder. “‘The EXILE’ encourages us all that the promise of His presence never leaves us. He is with us always.”

‘The EXILE’ serves as the second in a three-part trilogy that began with ‘Milk & Honey,’ which also topped the Billboard Top 200 Christian Charts in 2021 upon release. Produced by the GRAMMY Award-winning team Ben Glover and Jeff Sojka, the genre-bending 12-track collection of songs journeys from rock and traditional bluegrass infused elements to innovative urban beats.

The album’s lead single, “Grave Robber” earned Crowder his fifth Billboard no. 1 single on the Christian Adult Contemporary and Airplay charts earlier last month. The record features two collaborations – one titled “[—] DASH” with TobyMac. It also includes another alongside GRAMMY-Award winning musician and songwriter Buddy Miller on a track titled “All My Tears,” a song originally recorded by Julie Miller and Emmylou Harris.

The Texas native, Atlanta resident headlined Winter Jam earlier this year and is set to cap the bill at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in August. Additionally, he will be hitting the road this fall with MercyMe as part of the “Together Again… Again Tour,” and he will headline the “Air1 Tour” in November.
